Fancy a Ferrari for the weekend?

The Style Traveller Bonnie Rakhit Ferrari CarsFancy a Ferrari for the weekend?

Where? London and Devon, UK.

Exactly? Lucy and Richards wedding in Regents Park and Orestone Manor in Devon.

Why? When an email popped into my inbox the other day asking me if I’d like to take the new Ferrari California T for a weekend test drive, I felt excitement, intrepidation and slightly nervous all at the same time. I’ve been in fast cars many times, but none quite as fast as this and also I’m not usually the one behind the wheel.

So with a little hesitance from me and a lot of enthusiasm from my other half, I accepted Ferrari’s rather wonderful offer! Ferrari gave me a California T model to borrow for the weekend. As soon as I saw the bright red colour, super sleek exterior and plush interiors, oh and the licence plate number, I knew everything was going to be V8 FNE. So we decided to take it on a mini UK road trip to test out it’s speed, handling and well, just to pose really.

Here’s a photo diary of my fun filled weekend with Ferrari…

Set amidst the picturesque Devon countryside with gorgeous views of the sea, we checked in to luxury family run Georgian house hotel, Orestone Manor for a little post wedding chill out weekend. With 12 individually designed rooms with elegant, eclectic interiors. I loved the decor, a mix of Victoriana, colonial inspiration, art nouveaux and La elle epoque style. The vibe at the hotel is one of understated grandeur, it feels very relaxed and serene.Bonnie The Style Traveller Orestone manorAbove: Bonnie arrives at Orestone Manor, after a speedy drive in the Ferrari down the motorway from London and via twisty, tiny country roads, both super fun to drive down when in a car like this.Bonnie The Style Traveller Orestone manor bedroomMy superior suite at Orestone complete with a romantic balcony, perfect for a secluded meal for two.devon hotels Orestone manor ferrari
